In the early 1990's he built a homestead in Northern California where he lived off the grid, relying on solar power, firewood, and natural spring water. When he wasn't working for an alternative energy company and helping others with their alternative energy projects; he was working on the land with a rake, shovel, and a cup of coffee.
